October 1963 Electronics World

October 1963 Electronics World Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents 

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

This Electronic Crosswords puzzle appeared in the October 1963 edition of Electronics World magazine. About half the words used are related directly in some way to electronics or physics. It's a fairly small puzzle so it shouldn't take you too long to complete. My RF Cafe crosswords, by the way, have 100% of the words directly related to the sciences, from a custom lexicon I have created over 20 years of making puzzles. Enjoy.
